Having an average daily flow greater than two percent (2%) of the average sewage flow of the Village, shall be subject to the review of the Building Official and Superintendent. Where necessary in the opinion of the Superintendent, the owner shall provide, at his/her expense, such preliminary treatment as may be necessary to:
No person shall discharge or cause to be discharged the following described substances, materials, waters or wastes if it appears likely in the opinion of the Building Official and Superintendent that such wastes can harm either the sewers, sewage treatment process or equipment, cause the City of Carl Junction, Missouri, to violate its NPDES permit, have an adverse effect on the receiving stream or can otherwise endanger life, limb, public property or constitute a nuisance. In forming his/her opinion as to the acceptability of these wastes, the Building Official and Superintendent will give consideration to such factors as the quantities of subject wastes in relation to flows and velocities in the sewers, materials of construction of the sewers, nature of the sewage treatment process, capacity of the sewage treatment plant, degree of treatability of wastes in the sewage treatment plant and other pertinent factors. The substances prohibited are:
Any liquid or vapor having a temperature higher than one hundred fifty degrees Fahrenheit (150°F)(sixty-five degrees Celsius (65°C)) at the point before entering the public sewer or any sewage having a temperature which will result in a waste with a temperature at the introduction into the sewage works which exceeds one hundred four degrees Fahrenheit (104°F)(forty degrees Celsius (40°C)) or which cause interference at the sewage treatment plant.
Any water or waste containing fats, wax, grease or oils, whether emulsified or not, in excess of one hundred (100) mg/l or containing substances which may solidify or become viscous at temperatures between thirty-two degrees Fahrenheit (32°F) and one hundred fifty degrees Fahrenheit (150°F) (zero (0) and sixty-five degrees Celsius (65°C)).
Any garbage that has not been properly shredded. The installation and operation of any garbage grinder equipped with a motor of three-fourths (¾) horsepower (0.76 hp metric) or greater shall be subject to the review and approval of the Superintendent.
Any waters or wastes containing strong acid iron pickling wastes or concentrated plating solutions whether neutralized or not.
Any waters or wastes containing iron, chromium, copper, zinc and similar objectionable or toxic substances; or wastes exerting an excessive chlorine requirement to such degree that any such material received in the composite sewage at the sewage treatment works exceeds the limits established by the Superintendent for such materials.
Any waters or wastes containing phenols or other taste- or odor-producing substances in such concentrations exceeding limits which may be established by the Superintendent as necessary, after treatment of the composite sewage, to meet the requirements of State, Federal or other public agencies of jurisdiction for such discharge to the receiving waters.
Any radioactive wastes or isotopes of such half-life or concentration as may exceed limits established by the Superintendent in compliance with applicable State or Federal regulations.
Materials which exert or cause:
Unusual concentration of inert suspended solids (such as, but not limited to, Fuller's earth, lime slurries and lime residues) or of dissolved solids (such as, but not limited to, sodium chloride or sodium sulfate).
Excessive discoloration (such as, but not limited to, dye wastes and vegetable tanning solutions).
Unusual BOD, chemical oxygen demand, or chlorine requirements in such quantities as to constitute significant load on the sewage treatment works.
Unusual volume of flow or concentrate of wastes constituting "slugs" as defined herein.
Waters or wastes containing substances which are not amenable to treatment or reduction by the sewage treatment processes employed or are amenable to treatment only to such degree that the sewage treatment plant effluent cannot meet the requirements of other agencies having jurisdiction over discharge to the receiving waters such as NPDES permit requirements.
If any waters or wastes are discharged or are proposed to be discharged to the public sewers, which waters or wastes contain the substances or possess the characteristic enumerated in this Chapter and which in the judgment of the Building Official may have deleterious effect upon the sewage works, processes, equipment or receiving waters or which otherwise create a hazard to life or constitute a public nuisance, the Building Official may:
Reject the wastes; or
Require, at the owner's expense, pretreatment facilities to reduce objectionable characteristics or constituents to within the maximum limits provided in Subsection (D) of this Section and/or Federal or State pretreatment standards; and/or
Require control over the quantities and rates of discharge by developing discharge limitations; and/or
Grease, oil, and sand interceptors shall be provided when, in the opinion of the Building Official, they are necessary for the proper handling of liquid waste containing grease in excessive amounts or any flammable waste, sand, or other harmful ingredients, except that such interceptors shall not be required for private living quarters or dwelling units. All interceptors shall be of a type and capacity approved by the Building Official and shall be located as to be readily and easily accessible for cleaning and inspection. As a condition of the issuance of the annual business license for any such business within the Village, the owner and/or lessee or person in possession of such premises shall provide the certification by licensed plumber of the existence and proper operation of such interceptor. Any such business which shall, after notice, fail to provide such certification, will be in violation of Section 700.080 of this Code and subject to penalties as provided in Section 100.220 of this Code, including suspension of business license.
[Ord. No. 15-15 §1, 7-23-2015]
Where preliminary treatment or flow-equalizing facilities are provided for any waters or wastes, they shall be maintained continuously in satisfactory and effective operation by the owner at his/her expense.
When required by the Building Official, the owner of any property serviced by a building sewer carrying industrial wastes shall install a suitable control manhole together with such necessary meters and other appurtenances in the building sewer to facilitate observation, sampling and measurement of the wastes. Such manhole, when required, shall be accessible and safely located and shall be constructed in accordance with plans approved by the Building Official. The manhole shall be installed by the owner at his/her expense and shall be maintained by him/her so as to be safe and accessible at all times.
All measurements, tests and analysis of the characteristics of waters and wastes to which reference is made in this Chapter shall be determined in accordance with the latest edition of "Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater" published jointly by the American Public Heath Association, the American Water Works Association and the Water Pollution Control Federation and shall be determined at the control manhole provided or upon suitable samples taken at said control manhole. In the event that no special manhole has been required, the control manhole shall be considered to be the nearest downstream manhole in the public sewer to the point at which the building sewer is connected. Sampling shall be carried out by customarily accepted methods to reflect the effect of constituents upon the sewage works and to determine the existence of hazards to life, limb and property. (The particular analysis involved will determine whether a twenty-four (24) hour composite of all outfalls of a premises is appropriate or whether a grab sample or samples should be taken. Normally, but not always, BOD and suspended solids analyses are obtained from twenty-four (24) hour composites of all outfalls whereas pHs are determined from periodic grab samples.)
No statement contained in this Chapter shall be construed as preventing any special agreement or arrangement between the Village and any industrial concern whereby an industrial waste of unusual strength or character may be accepted by the Village for treatment, subject to payment therefore, by the industrial concern.
Users shall provide necessary wastewater treatment as required to comply with all Federal Categorical Pretreatment Standards within the time limitations as specified by the Federal Pretreatment Regulations. Any State requirements and limitations on discharges shall apply to any case where they are more stringent than Federal requirements and limitations. Any facilities required to pretreat wastewater to a level acceptable to the Village shall be provided, operated and maintained at the user's expense. Detailed plans showing the pretreatment facilities and operating procedures shall be submitted to the Village for review and shall be acceptable to the Village before construction of the facility. The review of such plans and operating procedures will in no way relieve the user from the responsibility of modifying the facility as necessary to produce an effluent meeting Federal categorical pretreatment standards. Any subsequent changes in the pretreatment facilities or method of operation shall be deported to and be acceptable to the Village prior to the user's initiation of the changes.
[CC 1995 §46.360]
